Described by Seattle Times as the “American Idol” of belly dance, Belly Dance Off is a multi-layered show in search of the secrets of a unique art of dance that interacts with authentic live Arabic music to present an entertaining and polished performance which is entirely improvised. Guests will enjoy the menu and exquisite surroundings of Vie de Boheme as dancers arrive in their best costumes, draw songs at random from a hat, and perform un-choreographed with live music by Ritim Egzotik! Expert judges present helpful feedback. Audience decides the winner! Between segments all guests are invited to dance, with a special prize for the best shimmies! One winner in each category receives a cash award and becomes a finalist in the 2014 Grand Championship in Seattle!

After studying Arabic dance in Egypt in 2006 and 2008, belly dance professional Suzanna of Seattle (and PSU alumna) decided to put her theatre degree to work, launching Belly Dance Off in 2010. Suzanna explains:

“Belly dance in the US is one of the few performing art forms in which performance in non-theatrical settings is the rule rather than exception. Unfortunately, similar to a virtuoso violinist playing next to a bus station, this means our talent is often unrecognized.”
